I begin this new year with my annual list of psychic predictions, albeit with a twist. That is, I am going to admit I failed to predict some of the things that came our way this past year because some things were, well, beyond belief.
Holy stupefying gender-bending twist of fate, Batman! The Santa Barbara Women’s Political Committee has endorsed Das Williams for county supervisor over Laura Capps? Does that mean that Sara Miller McCune, Janet Wolf, Susan Rose, et al. have lost their poligrip on the PC Women’s PC?
Speaking of Das Williams, of “How Great Thou Art” fame, he had the not-so-humble temerity to claim that he and his fellow virtue-signaling travelers, namely Supervisors Gregg Hart and Joan Hartmann, are global leaders in the fight against climate change. Reminds me of the saying, “a leader with no one following them is just a person on a walk.” In this case, a walk discussing how great they are in an echo chamber of their own vain glory.
Who could have predicted that Hunter Biden, the son of Democratic presidential contender Joe Biden, would work for an oil and gas company? What does that say about the progressive left’s doom-and-gloom psychotic predictions that mankind is facing an existential crisis having to do with greenhouse gases and climate change? Along these same lines, why would Barack Obama buy an estate on an island in light of the imminent threat of sea level rise?
I was in a restaurant the other day and asked the waitress for a straw. She said she would have to go to the kitchen to get one because she didn’t have a concealed carry permit for a straw. No kidding. Contrast that with the fact that in some states you don’t need a permit to open-carry a gun in a restaurant. How about admitting that neither poses a danger to society — guns in the hands of law-abiding citizens and straws that will be properly disposed of.
Time Magazine named Greta Thunberg as their person of the year. A few weeks later, this seething teenager remarked that political leaders who do not address climate change “should be put up against the wall.” Oops! Time Magazine must be thinking of the last time they named someone with world-domination aspirations as their person of the year, Adolph Hitler.
Immediately following her statement, Greta apologized and claimed she was misunderstood. I am not sure Neville Chamberlain would buy that. After all, other climate change activists, including President Obama’s former attorney general, Loretta Lynch, have publicly considered prosecuting climate change deniers, with some people recommending they be held on murder charges.
Finally, have you heard of “otherkins” or “trans species”? These are people who identify as animals, real or imaginary. In some local schools, kids who identify as such want to dress and be addressed by way of their alternative identity.
In the meantime, Universal Pictures has decreed that chimps used in movies can no longer be dressed as humans. Who can blame the chimps for not wanting to be confused with a lesser species?
